winter haiku d'hiver – the bounty hunter = le chasseur de primes the bounty hunter snares a wight fox pup snapped in half le chasseur de primes piège un chiot renard blanc craqué en deux Richard Vallance NOTE: I fully realize that haiku such as this one probably disgust some of you folks, but I am trying to wake you up to human cruelty and our destruction of wildlife. Je me rends compte du fait que des haiku tels que celui-ci peuvent écoureur plusieurs parmi vous, mais je tente de vous réveiller à la cruauté humaine et à notre destruction de la faune sauvage.
senryu – a monster shoves = un monstre pousse a monster shoves in the trash his bloodied dog an angel hears wail un monstre pousse dans la poubelle son chien blessé qu'un cher ange sauve Richard Vallance This is one of the vilest instances of animal cruelty I have ever seen. The pig tied his severely injured 9 month old puppy in a plastic bag and tossed her in the garbage. Thank God the poor wee tyke was saved and love was showered on him. I strongly urge everyone to comment on this appalling act! Please visit this site, I love my dogs so much, for the terrible story with a sweet ending (and you may weep as I did): Click here!
I don’t think I have ever seen anything as pitiable as this sketch by a girl of a tiger crying in a zoo:
She says she hated going to the zoo after she saw the poor tiger pacing back and forth in its cage. And I am sure she saw tears in its eyes. It is just disgusting and utterly shocking how we as so-called adults are doing everything in our power (and we have far too much of that) to destroy every other living soul on our planet. The feed accompanying this astonishing sketch warns us that “Sometimes children are wiser than adults.” Not only wiser, but clearly far more in tune with our planet.
The child is father of the man;
And I could wish my days to be
Bound each to each by natural piety.
(William Wordsworth, “My Heart Leaps Up”)
As for myself I cannot stand zoos, and I believe they should all be banned forever. Here are a few sickening examples why:
Just who do we think we are? The most intelligent species on planet earth? What a laugh!
Wild life parks with plenty of space for animals to roam in are another story altogether. At least the animals have plenty of room to roam around in. Thank God for small blessings.

From time to time, I shall be posting more environmentally sensitive topics here on LBK&M, in spite of the fact that they have nothing to do with Linear A, B or C.
